Philipp Weiss on the Promising Potentials of Food Forests in the Nordics

Philipp Weiss from Stjärnsund, Sweden, is an environmental engineer who worked in industry and academia, before realizing that life is too short to spend it in an office. He quit his job and turned his passion for edible perennial plants into a livelihood, writing books and teaching on the topic. Growing up in southern Germany, Philipp’s childhood home was located nearby an edible landscape, made up of hundreds of abandoned orchards that had naturally become a food forest on a large scale. This childhood memory of perennial abundance is what inspired Philipp to plant a food forest in his own garden and eventually also in the larger landscape of his community. In this conversation, we talk about the possibilities of establishing food forests at scale in the Nordics.
